Sixth-grader Georgie has been enchanted by the Nutcracker ballet ever since her grandfather took her to see it when she was five. He also encouraged her to pursue her dream of performing as Clara, the lead role, someday. Now, the moment she’s been waiting for is here. Georgie and her best friend, Kaitlyn, have been asked by their dance instructor to try out for the role of Clara. Since there are two casts, the girls are delighted that they could both get the chance to perform as Clara. However, when Kaitlyn chokes at the audition, Georgie has more problems to deal with than whether or not she’ll play Clara in the ballet. Add to the mix the fact that she’s transported into the magical world of the nutcracker every time she dances with him in practice, and Georgie has two worlds of problems to face.

This enchanting tale is a must for fans of the Nutcracker ballet. Every girl who’s ever dreamed of being Clara, either as a dancer or just in her imagination, will find herself in Georgie. Fast-paced and balanced between fantasy and real middle-school drama, this book offers more than just a fanciful ode to the beloved holiday ballet.
